The Boy, Paperback Book


This is a genuinely groundbreaking work which has changed the way we look at boys in art, in literature and in life.

In a series of carefully constructed and dazzlingly illustrated themes, ranging from the boy as a passive love object to soldier boys, from the boy under the female gaze to what is a boy, Germaine Greer opens our eyes and invites us to appreciate boys in all their sensuality, flirtatiousness and vulnerability.
